iAmiami pre-owned itemsn/a

I really like the idea of Amiami selling pre-owned figures. I have only checked in on it about 3x and I've been noticing the awesome deals you can get and the amount of hard to find items popping up on it. I saw Shizuru item #672 for only 2,600 yen today and I nearly died and then found out she was sold out.

My questions are: Who has bought from amiami's pre-owned items? Seems like most things I look at are already sold out. How quick do you have to be to actually get them? And how often is the page updated?

kilani (1 year ago) #1146798Hahahaha. They put items up as sold out, even though they are not really sold out. Some items go up for sale before others, so it's random in that you can't determine it. Just put up a notification and hope for the best.
Going to bed now. Good night and good luck XD


I still dont know what putting up a notification means! The only thing I can see is watchlist but items in my watch list dont alert me when a preowned version shows up....

kemando (1 year ago) #1146797Could you reword that in a way that makes more sense please? Lol thanks for the info though, i just assumed they'd open the carts right when they update.

kilani (1 year ago) #1146793From my stock checks over the past 6 months or so I've found it's pretty random. Some items are probably taken quick but often if you are on it they are not really taken.

kemando (1 year ago) #1146792Wait wait wait, back up a second here. You're saying they dont even open up sales for the figures until however long after they're added? If this is the case then why are some figures available while others still say sold out?

kilani (1 year ago) #1146709They're not really sold out, AmiAmi does this with a lot of other things (sometimes pre-orders, usually sale items).

If this is the case then why are some figures available while others still say sold out? And how long before this "fake sold out status" on the figure page goes away so you can add it to cart?

kemando (1 year ago) #1146708Well, I discovered they usually update around a certain time in my area, so I waited and just kept clicking refresh, and it updated! I was so excited for first pick of the litter as they update. Well, thing is, all the new figures that got added, every one I clicked sent me to an error page, after endlessly closing and reopening each figure page (in tabs of course, always keeping preowned open) after the errors finally went away after closing and opening the pages (immediately I might add, about 1-2 second intervals), all the figures were gone. That's right, I refreshed the page the second they updated, and click a figure not 20 seconds after that, and apparently that's not fast enough. The pages send you to error messages, which doesnt mean a transaction, because other figures that had the error weren't sold (less popular of course) but the errors went away all at the same time, so even though I was there, and clicked the figure I wanted withing 30 seconds of the update, I didn't get it because of error messages, and when the errors went away they were sold out. This makes no sense to me at all.

What time does it update? I live in Canada I believe mountain time... not sure when it does, so I check periodically throughout the day, alot of times I'm slow and miss some figures though.

converted into UK time, what time does amiami usually update their pre-owned section?
I'm stalking it daily because i've got a feeling alice will show up on it soon *-*
and it she does, I'm going to have to snag her. Fast.

Kino (1 year ago) #1079113Would be very happy if she gets rereleased, but was that an old news from a few years back? ^^"
Me do want Shizuru <3


Haha I didn't check the date, sorry XD

I wonder whatever happened to the re-release decision.
